Corten Steel Cladding
This is one of our recent projects in a private garden. What is great about this system is that although the Corten steel cladding is its own structure, it is essentially cosmetic. Meaning the actual retaining wall can simply be made with treated pine and galvanised steel. Eliminating the need for rendering brick walls filled with rio and concrete, although we can clad those too.
Firstly, the retaining wall is made from treated pine and galvanised steel. Next, Lump makes a visit to the site to measure the walls and consult with the owner on the desired outcome. The measurements are taken back to Lump Studio HQ and developed into scale drawings.
We then use those scale drawings to nut out and plan the fabrication of the Corten Steel cladding system inside our studio. Once the cladding system is fabricated we take it outside and accelerate the rusting process. Finally we have a pre rusted Corten steel cladding skin, this is loaded up and taken to site where the fabrication and fitting is completed during installation.
